So, what can we learn from this? Well, it would be tempting to offer advice along the lines of "if you want to succeed in this field, write a piece of software that a lot of people find useful, and make sure you have a publication that they can cite." Oh, and getting in early helps. Of course, this advice should be taken with a pinch of salt. Beware the 100th idiot.
